On April 27, 2012, UNHCR made the first payment of the monthly subsistence allowance to persons of concern through PJSC ?Ukrsotsbank?. Previously, UNHCR was distributing financial assistance in cash to about 200 vulnerable asylum-seekers and refugees residing in four regions ofUkraineon a bi-monthly basis. PJSC ?Ukrsotsbank? agreed to cooperate with UNHCR recognizing the difficulties refugees and asylum-seekers face in Ukraine and proposed to process assistance at no cost for the banking services. Introduction of the new system will allow to reduce the number of missions by office staff for the purpose of distribution of assistance, as well as to eliminate security risks related to travel with cash.
